Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said the Opposition is spreading fears and that the government is committed to farmers’ welfare.
Reaching out to agitating farmers while laying the foundation stone of several projects in Gujarat, Modi said the agriculture reforms implemented are what farmer bodies and even Opposition have been asking over the years.
We are committed to farmers’ welfare and will keep addressing their concerns.
What Modi said about Kutch
Modi is in Kutch to inaugurate several mega energy projects and other development projects. He called Kutch one of the fastest developing areas which has embraced new-age technology.
“Today Kutch has taken a big step towards new-age technology and new-age economy. People of Kutch turned disappointment into hope…Even a big earthquake couldn’t shatter the morale of Kutch residents,” Modi said.
He said in the last two decades Gujarat has introduced many farmer-friendly schemes and was among the earliest to work on strengthening solar energy capacities.
The development projects which Modi will inaugurate include a desalination plant, a hybrid renewable energy park, and a fully automated milk processing and packing plant, the PMO said in a statement earlier.
This Desalination Plant, with 10 crore litre per day capacity (100 MLD), will strengthen water security in Gujarat by complementing Narmada Grid, Sauni network and treated wastewater infrastructure, a release from the PMO said.
The plant will supply desalinated water to nearly eight lakh people across the regions of Mundra, Lakhpat, Abdasa, and Nakhatrana talukas.
The Hybrid Renewable Energy Park near Vighakot village at Kutch in Gujarat, the country’s largest renewable energy generation park will help generate 30 GW of renewable power.
